This is a small inn in the rolling hills of central Tuscany. Stayed a few days and would absolutely repeat and reccomend. It is about 20 minutes from Sienna or S Gimignano, an hour and change from Florence or Pisa. The chianti regions, Montalcino, and Montepulcino, are easy day trips, as is Siena or Arezzo, and I would imagine the beach cities. I would even reccomend this place for people who want to see Firenze or Pisa, but don't want to stay in the city overnight. Although you will probably need a car here, and you generally would not want to drive into those cities. I was happy to let our host, Ellio, reccomend places to visit every morning. He made some excellent itinararies.
Rooms are tidy and have a private bath with shower. Beds are comfortable and, although there is no Air Conditioning, it really does cool down in the evening. Fans provide ample fresh air. There is a pool, as well as several outdoor tables to sip a bottle of wine at. Breakfast is glorious, served with coffee, cakes, cheeses, and fresh fruits. I loved the cakes, which were differrnt every day.
WiFi is not free, but inexpensive, although it was spotty in the room. It worked at breakfast.
There are less than 10 rooms at this place, and it has a couples vibe, but I think childeren would be fine. I do not think there are any restaurants within walking distance, but the regions is best seen by day trips. Service is really great. It would be a great place for a small group of people, especially if day tripping to wine country sounds nice.
I would definitly reccomend this place and would like to stay again.
